Audi is proud to announce that it has taken home three Residual Value Awards from ALG, the industry benchmark for residual values and depreciation data, as well as three 2012 Best Resale Value Awards from Kelly Blue Book’s, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information.

The annual ALG Residual Value Awards recognizes automakers’ outstanding achievements in producing new vehicles that are predicted to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a conventional three-year period. The Audi A6, S5 and Q7 received recognition for the 2012 year.

The all-new 2012 A6 won the award in the Luxury Car category. One of the most innovative and technologically-advanced models to date, the A6 makes up to 2,000 decisions per second to assist the driver. In the Luxury Sports Car category, the 2012 Audi S5 took top honors for its iconic design and dynamic character. And the 2012 Audi Q7 won the award in the Luxury Fullsize Utility Vehicle category for its ability to blend Audi refinement with generous passenger capacity.

ALG winners are determined through careful study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance, and industry trends. Vehicle quality, production levels relative to demand, and pricing and marketing strategies remain the key factors that affect ALG’s residual value forecasts.
